I often have trouble falling asleep, but I really don’t like taking sleeping pills or sleep aids if I can avoid it. They do help me fall asleep, but I hate the groggy, out-of-sorts feeling I always have when I wake up the next morning.
Essential oils have been a huge help to me in this regard, because they offer sleep-related benefits without morning grogginess. Studies have shown that oils like lavender and marjoram can help improve sleep quality and quality of life.
Both of those essential oils play a starring role in the essential oil blend that has become my trusty bedtime companion over the past few months. So today we’ll explore the various ways that Slumber essential oil blend can be a useful tool in your quest for better sleep!
What Is Slumber Blend?
Slumber blend contains lavender, cedarwood, lime, bergamot, marjoram, and vetiver essential oils, all blended together in fractionated coconut oil. This earthy combination of oils can help relieve stress, promote peaceful feelings, and support a good night’s sleep!
I like to add 2-3 drops to my diffuser at bedtime, but there are plenty of other ways to use Slumber blend too! Here are a few of the other options you have when using this blend.
4 Ways To Use Slumber Essential Oil Blend For Better Sleep
1. In A Diffuser
Add a few drops of Slumber blend to your diffuser and start it up before turning in for the night. The relaxing scent will fill your bedroom to help both you and your partner get a good night’s sleep! But you don’t have to take my word for it—check out these reviews from my shop!
2. In A Roller Bottle
Add 5-10 drops of Slumber blend to a roller bottle, then top it off with fractionated coconut oil (or whichever carrier oil you prefer.) To use it, simply swipe the roller onto the soles of your feet before bedtime!
3. In A Salve
If you dream of great sleep and softer, more moisturized feet, make your very own Sleep Salve! Just whip up this all-natural salve recipe using Slumber essential oil blend. Slather a generous amount of Sleep Salve onto your feet before bedtime and pull on a pair of socks. You’ll get some high-quality shut-eye and wake up with softer, smoother feet too!
4. In A Spray
You can also use Slumber blend to make a simple spray to mist onto bedding and pillows. This is a more subtle option that will still help promote sound sleep, making it great for children or people who are sensitive to strong scents. Make a Slumber spray to mist over bedding and pillows by adding 15 drops to 1 cup of distilled water to a small spray bottle. Shake well before each use.
